Working in the commercial parts supply industry was just the beginning for Robinson Zapata. As a 17-year GE Aerospace employee and member of the U.S. Army Reserves, he found his true calling and fell in love with the precision and dedication required in the aviation industry. What really motivates him are the people he works with.
A Jumbo Moment for SAF: Emirates Operates First A380 on 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel in One Engine
Dubai-based Emirates became the first airline to operate an Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner, on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in one engine. The aircraft, which is powered by four Engine Alliance GP7200 engines, used 100% SAF in one of its four engines, another milestone in the industry’s growing momentum to bring standardization, certification, and adoption of 100% SAF closer to reality.
GE Aerospace partnered with POLITICO on its Defense Summit this month to highlight the company’s history, scale and expertise — and to highlight a major milestone in the company’s efforts to put new capabilities in the hands of the warfighter thanks to the XA100 adaptive engine.
Meet the GE Aerospace Advanced Technology Inspector Laureates Helping to Revolutionize Aircraft Engine Inspection
Aviation Week Network this week announced its coveted Laureate Awards, and GE Aerospace was named a winner in the MRO category for multiple advanced inspection technologies it is bringing to improve the efficiency, accuracy, and quality of inspections.
GE Aerospace engineers joined a newly released episode of a renewable fuels podcast to speak to the role the company’s new aircraft engine technologies in development could play in reducing flight emissions, as well as how GE Aerospace is supporting SAF testing and qualification with its engines.
In this installation of Quick Six, GE Aerospace chatted with Miriam Alvarez, Senior Manufacturing Manager.
Alvarez has been with GE Aerospace for 13 years, during which she’s been deeply involved with the Hispanic Forum, which has incited her commitment to volunteer in the community and grow her career through mentorship.
Known for its daring rescues and VIP transport, the Sikorsky S-92 is getting an upgrade. GE Aerospace’s CT7 engines that power the S-92 will now use a blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and conventional jet fuel during maintenance, repair, and overhaul at ITP Aero. This move reflects the aviation industry’s commitment to sustainable flight.
The F-35 Lightning II, manufactured by Lockheed Martin, can reach supersonic speeds and may be the world’s stealthiest fighter plane. For pilots, its advanced electronic systems are what really set it apart. Designed to replace most of the United States’ aging fighter fleet, the F-35 comes equipped with a constellation of sensors and avionics that assemble a remarkably detailed picture of conditions in and around the aircraft. GE Aerospace supplies eight of those systems, including electrical power management, aircraft memory, remote interface units for the fuselage and missiles, and engine-monitoring technology. This spring, GE Aerospace signed a four-year performance-based logistics (PBL) contract with Lockheed Martin to maintain and repair this equipment on F-35 aircraft around the world.
GE Aerospace today marks the 30th year since its F414 engine successfully completed its first run. With decades of experience under its belt and reputation of offering an outstanding performance, reliability, and versatility, the F414 is still firing on all cylinders.
MRO Americas is the largest trade show in the world that’s dedicated to aviation maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO).
